Orlando and Lauren, a hopeful Bi-Racial adoptive family

We’d like you to meet Orlando and Lauren, a hopeful adoptive couple living in Pennsylvania. We encourage you to read about their life in their own words. Here is what they have to say:

Our Life

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves and tell you about our family.

We are a fun, active family of three that enjoys exploring new places together. We look forward to sharing our home of love and laughter with your child. We are honored that you would consider us as adoptive parents.

Meet Lauren (by Orlando)

Lauren is a dynamic woman, a wonderful wife, and an amazing mother. She is fun, energetic, loving, adventurous, and compassionate just to make a few things. Lauren is a big sports fan, is always patient when speaking with others, and an enthusiastic traveler. As a doctor, Lauren works extremely hard helping her colleagues and those whom she supervises. As a mother, Lauren is the most nurturing person I have ever met.

She enjoys reading books and singing songs with our daughter, Madison. They also go on walks together and kick a ball around in the yard. She is very excited to welcome your baby to the family and looks forward to reading to them their favorite books and singing with them their favorite songs.

Meet Orlando (by Lauren)

Orlando is a kind and loyal man who puts his family first and is incredibly supportive of all of us. His work includes shopping for and delivering groceries for those who can’t get out of their house. He currently works part-time so he can devote more time to our family. He enjoyed spending time each year as a soccer coach teaching at a soccer camp for young kids. Orlando is resourceful, diligent, and loves to learn new things from photography to DIY projects. (He even built an enclosed porch on our house.)

When not practicing his photography skills, he also enjoys exploring nature, going for hikes, and playing in a soccer league in town. He is a great head of our family and such a loving father to our daughter. He will never miss an opportunity to take her to the park and she adores her dad. I am so looking forward to watching him share his adventurous spirit with our next child.

Our Family

Often we will find her running around carrying one of her stuffed friends, a ball, or a handful of books (or all of the above at the same time.) She is playful, affectionate, and is developmentally on pace or ahead in her milestones and we are especially proud of her communication. We started teaching her American Sign Language around 10 months old and she picked it up very well. She has almost as many ASL words as she does verbal words.

One of the things that drew us together is our love for family. We are lucky to have tremendous support throughout life and specifically in this adoption process from our extended family.

Our Adoption Promise

We promise to love your child unconditionally. We will help them to grow a spirit of curiosity and wonder. We will introduce them to a wide variety of different experiences, give them a supportive and safe environment to learn on their own, and ultimately help them discover their own path in life. We will encourage hard work and dedication in pursuit of their dreams as well as kindness and caring toward everyone they meet. We look forward to shared laughter and making memories together as a family with your child. We are open to keeping in touch with you through letters and pictures and, if you are interested, visits.

To connect with us, please fill out this form and we will get back to you. We are looking forward to getting to know you!
